The Ledges – An Iconic Newport Manse

Steeped in history, “The Ledges” was the original summer home of the Cushing Family.  Built in 1867 by high society and prolific Boston-based tea and china merchant, Robert M. Cushing.  Cushing was an incorporator of the Casino, Newport Country Club, and adjacent Bailey’s Beach.  This majestic oceanfront home is perfectly perched on one of Newport’s most desirable peninsulas, overlooking The Atlantic Ocean.  This quintessential Newport “summer cottage” maintains spectacular water views from the stunning wrap around porch and from almost every room of the manse.

Now 150 years later, Robert Cushing’s descendants still own the estate – relatively untouched, featuring original furnishings, beautiful papered walls, and unique artwork.

The interiors were ever so gently updated by John Peixinho (Portsmouth, RI native), a subtle decorator known for preserving Newport’s high-WASP style in 2006.  Peixinho highlighted Cushing’s China trade fortunes, such as Chinese pottery, combined with French flair.

Most recently this historic estate’s exteriors were featured in the 2007 motion picture “The Evening.”

“The Ledges” is available for rent for the 2018 season.  For additional details contact The Gustave White Sotheby’s International Realty Rentals Department.

Immerse Yourself in the 3D World

Gustave White Sotheby’s International Realty is proud to present the newest in 3D photography and videography.  In coordination with state-of-the-art technologies, we are able to engage our buyers and delight sellers.  This week we unveil our Matterport 3D Showcase – the most realistic, immersive way to experience a property online.

The 3D Showcase is an online experience for homebuyers to move through a property and see it from any angle. With distinct Dollhouse views, homebuyers are given a unique sense of the property.  Photo galleries, 360° panoramas, and fly-through videos lack the feel that home buyers and sellers crave. Our Matterport 3D Showcase immerses visitors so they can create an emotional connection.410 Puncateest Neck Road │Tiverton, Rhode Island 02878

The 360° panoramic tours seem like 3D at first glance, but they’re not. Only 3D real estate tours by Matterport allows buyers actually move through a property as if they were really there. Furthermore, only Matterport offers a total sense of a home with its exclusive Dollhouse View.
